Naam van de archiefvormer
Marjorie was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1919 to her parents Harry and Betty (Babe) Frome. She moved with her parents and brother Alan, to Vancouver in 1937. In 1941 she married Cecil Groberman, son of Morris and Hilda Groberman. They had 2 children, Jeffrey, born in 1945 and Hildy, born in 1949. Jeffrey has 2 children: Aviva Mandelman, BA and Elan Groberman, an electric engineer. Hildy Barnett has 2 children: Joel, BA and Mira.
Marjorie became very active in Hadassah-WIZO and in 1952, originating and chairing the first bazaar and exposition open to the general public at the Seaforth Armoury. For the next 10 years she traveled across Canada teaching 12 other cities how to set up their own bazaar and exposition.
In 1964 Marjorie was invited to Israel to set up the first ever bazaar and exposition at the World WIZO conference in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
She rose to become president of Vancouver Hadassah-WIZO, then National vice president and eventually a member for 4 years of the World WIZO executive in Israel.
One of the highlights of her community work was organizing the national convention of Hadassah-WIZO in Vancouver in January 10-14, 1997.
In addition to Hadassah-WIZO, Marjorie opened the first Vancouver office of the Israel bonds and co-chaired its first bond drive. She was also chair person of the women’s division of Combined Jewish Appeal and served as a board member of Jewish Federation for many years (both her mother and daughter served as chairs of the Combined Jewish Appeal). Her latest community work has been with the seniors department of the Vancouver Jewish Community Centre, serving on their board of directors. Marjorie and her father, Harry Frome, were honoured at a Negev Dinner in 1966. On April 28, 2010 Marjorie received from the government of British Columbia a community achievement award.
Bereik en inhoud
The fonds contains records from Marjorie Groberman's work with Hadassah Wizo in Vancouver. The fonds consists of textual materials including newspaper clippings and a manual on Hadassah Wizo's annual bazaars in Vancouver and elsewhere in Canada and Israel. Several files are dedicated to material prepared before, during and after the Hadassah Wizo general convention, which took place in Vancouver in 1997. Two files detail three awards given to Marjorie, two from the Jewish community of Vancouver and one from the government of BC, the BC Community Achievement Award in 2010. There are multiple copies of Hadassah Wizo's journal, Highlights Magazine, and Orah Magazine. Other records include letters and cables written to Marjorie by colleagues and friends from the organization and family members, as well as 7 photographs and approximately 250 slides
The fonds is arranged into three series: Marjorie Groberman's public life; Marjorie Groberman's private life; and Photographs.
